I was really honored to take photos of Katie and Mike this past Friday. They came to me as a referral last year when I was really starting to get my wedding business of the ground. I remember it was really snowy, and since they lived in Philadelphia, it was going to be rough getting there. I drove down and found a parking spot that could only be reached in a 4 x 4 vehicle. Luckily, that happened to be what I was driving at the time!

Upon entering, I met Mike, Katie, and Katie’s parents. We had an immediate connection and I chatted happily away about my family, photography, the weather and their upcoming event. I brought my laptop with me, a printed photobook, and of course, my camera. In this respect I think I’m a little unique: when I do a consultation for a wedding, I actually bring my gear with me and do an actual shoot of the couple. It’s important that I get a feel for them as photographic subjects and they of me. As soon as I put the camera up to my eye and looked through the viewfinder, I saw a couple that was going to be great for my style of photography…

Needless to say, they agreed as well.

Congratulations, Katie and Mike, and of course to your families for their warmth and hospitality. The pix are now available on my event website!
